How Does Caffeine Keep You Awake?

How Does Caffeine Keep Me Up Late at Night? In short, it's all about two words: Brain Chemistry. You see, our “Brain Chemistry” have a bunch of neural chemicals in our brains that are in charge of regulating this balance and keeping us awake or asleep and controlling our level of energy, alertness, fatigue, etc. Caffeine is a fat-soluble chemical that easily passes from your bloodstream into your brain tissue. Our brain activity is controlled by chemicals called neurotransmitters, which either stimulate brain cells or quiet them. Adenosine is an important one of those “quieting neurotransmitter”.

Do Dates have an Aphrodisiac effect? In other words ("Can date seed coffee help me?")

For some reasons, we get this question often, very often ... usually around evening time.   First of all, we would like to apologize for the probably too late reply! Let us start with coffee (the other ingredient in our date seed coffee). It usually breaks the ice pretty neatly.

Did you know that our sense of smell makes up between 75% and 95% of what we taste? When we can not smell, certain food completely lose their taste.

Dates are available year round, but because they are harvested in fall and early winter, they’re freshest then. There are three main categories of dates: soft, semisoft, and dry. "Dry dates" are not dates that have been deliberately dehydrated, as is the case with other kinds of dried fruits. Instead, they simply contain relatively little moisture when ripe. Whereas your dried apricots, banana, papaya, kiwi or for that matter almost any dried fruit may contain added juices, sweeteners and preservatives usually sulfites or more precise "Sulfur Dioxide"), dates are naturally dried.   Here are some varieties of dates you may find in...
